Trickle may have been as well known for the jokes about his name as he was for his racing skills.  While he was never a major winner on the NASCAR stage, collecting just one checkered flag on the Winston/Sprint cup series and one in the Busch series.  He was billed as the winning-est short track driver in history, logging a million miles and winning nearly 1,000 feature races.

According to WISTV in Charlotte, NC, trickle took his life with a self inflicted gun shot wound just after noon today (5/16/13).

The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call apparently from the victim that “there would be a dead body and it would be his “.  Communications Center workers tried to place a return call to the number but did not get an answer.

 

One of the most memorable TV moments for Trickle came when the in-car camera showed him having a smoke while racing.  Check out the video.
